 So here’s a question for Trump supporters who enjoy
making libtards cry. Do you think they’re crying because you hurt their feelings? Is that what you’re into? Do you also like to hurt yourself? Because the thing the libtard
probably is crying about is how you’re going to lose your health care, or job, or freedom, in other words how your injured dignity is going to hurt even
more. If you make me sad it isn’t because you called me a name, it’s because our once-great country has been reduced to jealousy as a popular form of political
expression. I wish you were happier with your life, I really do, but I don’t think trying to give your pain to others is actually going to make you feel
better. I think if anything it’ll make you feel worse.

At this rate, I expect Apple’s next “innovation” will be a pop-up hand flipping us off when we open the box. And for $400 extra, it’ll slap you.

Yeah, it would be nice if they would just tell us they’re flipping us off and get it over with, because I hate pretending.

At the risk of launching into an incredibly long rant, Apple is a company I hate to love.

They’re great at accessibility, except when they’re not, like when they let VoiceOver bugs just languish for years and years, or introduce new ones that somehow never end up getting fixed. Right now my bugbear is one where VoiceOver just randomly puts you back at the top of a screen when you’re trying to read something/press a button/whatever.

At first I thought it was the particular app I was working with, and was going to write the developers a bug report in the hope that I’d get some other response than “We’ll see what we can do,” which is polite speak for “Yeah we don’t have accessibility on our roadmap and probably won’t until we are literally forced to”.

And then, I jumped into the settings on my phone to update some stuff for my Apple ID, and, oh look! It does the same thing there!

I’m confident that other people have seen this and that other people have reported it through official channels because there are tons of people who run iOS betas because they have to have the latest stuff, and even a few within that bunch who actually do take the time to properly report bugs with necessary details.

(Waving at you Marco).

So yeah, if they’re going to do all the work to flip us off, just tell us already and get it over with.

Oops, the rant happened.

Glad to see John is posting these on his site again.

I got sidetracked tonight and jumped into the rabbithole that is Pollen and Racket, which I’ve been tempted to look into for several years for simultaneously publishing both websites and books. 
In just a few minutes in a quick demo, I’ve been able to build a local website. This seems a bit eas…

One of my goals in 2018 is to own my reading data rather than using Goodreads for all of that information. This will allow me to track information the way I want rather than have to do it like Goodreads wants me to.
My eventual goal is to have something like what Xavier made, but for now I’m going…
